Ways to Know If Your AC Vent Covers Need Replacement

iStock 175602935 1

AC vent covers may not be the most critical part in an HVAC system, but they are probably the most visible. These are the louvered components that cover the HVAC supply-duct outlets that deliver conditioned air into a room as well as the return vents that convey air back to the central air handler.

Which Vent Is Where?

In most homes, supply AC vent covers are located either on the floor, outer walls, under windows, or in the ceiling in each room, while the return vent is usually down near the floor or, in some cases, installed in the floor. The supply vent cover incorporates adjustable louvers that control the volume of conditioned air entering the room, as well as directing the flow of air. In some cases, a single return vent serves multiple rooms and is installed in a central location such as a hallway.

Is It Time for New AC Vent Covers?

Vent covers are easily removable and, because the sizes are typically standardized, may be replaced with new covers readily available from home improvement stores and other outlets. Here are some scenarios where vent replacement is desirable.
